As of autumn 2023, the company will be delivering to its 53 Belgian shops from its new CDC in Blandain, as well as directly to customers and sites. On start-up, the centre will have 110,000 warehouse bins, with the potential to expand to over 1 million bins.
The CDC is a highly strategic project, developed in response to rapid growth. By automating its systems, lead times will be reduced enormously and the company can work on developing supporting services for its customers.
Cebeo’s goal for the CDC is to secure an ‘Excellent’ BREEAM certification. This certification affirms that they have put serious thought and effort into greening spaces, using green energy and making the building sustainable. For example, the CDC has consigned cardboard and plastic to history and now works entirely with ‘returnable totes’. For the people who work there, the CDC will be a modern, ergonomic and pleasant place to work.
